My Friday Finds . . .

 A few of the things  I find each week that pique my interest, bring me joy, inspire me to learn, create, do, become, inspire memories . . . maybe they will do the same for you!     
Mer Mag.  Brownstone doll houses made from cardboard.   I remember my mom making me doll house furniture when I was about 5 years old from cardboard and toothpicks.  It is a sweet memory for me. 
A button sampler, just because  . . . 

Declutter Organise Repurpose.  Things to do with cardboard boxes for children.  Cute!  
Zygote Brown Designs.  DIY cardboard costume templates. Not free, but pretty darned amazing!   
Blueberry Back Roads. Inspiration.
Lia Griffith.  DIY Paper Sailboat Centrepiece.  
 Little Miss Stitcher.  Free pattern for a bear cub hat.  
Anthropologie, no longer available but I love these love birds cake stands.   Not that I would ever have an opportunity to use such a thing.  But I can admire. 
Lotus Looms Designs on Ravelry.  

Crochet and Create.  Granny Wash Cloth.  
Patchwork Posse. Quick and easy hot pads.  
Creative Pink Butterfly.  Rice eye mask tutorial.  
Frugel Mom Eh.  with printable sheets and money envelopes.  
The Creative Girl.  Family planner, printable.  
Well Ella.  Bullet Journal fonts to practice.  
Mama Geek.  Printable handwriting exercise sheets.  
Butter with a side of Bread.  I always loved Orange Julius.  Haven't had one in years. 

Paper Tail Design.  Printable planner sheets.  
 Boy, did we waste our money buying planners, and costco memberships, etc. this year.  Who could have predicted this.   

A thought to carry with you  . . .

Your hardest times often
lead to the greatest moments
of your life. Keep going.
Tough situations build
strong people in the end.•。★★ 。* 。 
 Nothing new in the kitchen today  . . .  but I will share this. 
Dirty Fries. Inexplicably one of the most popular recipes on The English Kitchen.  Frozen oven chips with a variety of spice and toppings.  They are rather tasty actually.  
Have a great Friday.  We were encouraged again by the clapping for our heros last night at 8 PM.  so many people out in their gardens showing their appreciation by making some noise for our helpers.  Such a mood booster!  Are they doing anything like that where you live???

Don't forget!

And I do too!     


  1. You are incredible at finding so many neat links and ideas...LOVE it...thanks!! You know, you might write to Costco and ask that they reimburse at least part of your yearly fee (the part you are unable to use due to the lockdown and their not having pickup or delivery)...never hurts to ask.

    1. It does never hurt to ask Elizabeth. We might try that. Its not that expensive, but it all adds up. Insurance for a car that is just sitting in the driveway, road tax, again for a car that is just sitting there. Those two things alone come to more than £100 a month. xoxo

  2. Lots of cute ideas..

    1. Thanks for the link Monique!I will be sure to check it out! Have had a quick glance and everything is super cute! I think we are living in a time which either brings out the best in people or the worst. In most cases the best. I like that. Love and hugs. xoxo

  3. This was a fun one. I loved all the things for children. I like doll houses a lot. I think I will send this to my great grandchildren.
    I also liked the crocheted items and especially the Granny Washcloths.
    All the printable are useful.T
    The orange Julius looks delicious.
    Sending hugs your way!
